Question

In a game a few years ago, two football players crash into each
other during a tackle. The first player (mass 115 kg) is traveling
at 5.78 m/s, at an angle of 49.4 degrees south of east. The second
player (mass 98.0 kg) is traveling at 7.94 m/s, at an angle of 40.4
degrees north of east. The two players then collide, and stick
together right after the collision. Define north as positive y and
east as positive x.

A. What is the x-component of the players' velocity, right after
the collision? *Hint 1: the players will have the same velocity
right after the collision because they stick together. Hint 2: you
will need to break the initial velocities up into
components.*

m/s

B. What is the y-component of the players' velocity, right after
the collision?

I ONLY NEED PART B ANSWERED
A 77.0-kg fullback running east with a speed of 5.40 m/s is
tackled by a 79.0-kg opponent running north with a speed of 3.00
m/s. (a) Explain why the successful tackle constitutes a perfectly
inelastic collision. ___________________
(b) Calculate the velocity of the players immediately after the
tackle.
magnitude=_____ m/s
direction=______ ° north of east
HINT: Find the total momentum of the two players before the
collision and use conservation of momentum to find...

A 2500 kg car moving east at 10.0 m/s collides with a 3000 kg
car moving north. The cars stick together and move as a unit after
the collision, at an angle of 47.0° north of east and at a speed of
6.66 m/s. Find the velocity of the 3000 kg car before the
collision. m/s north

A 2,500-kg car moving east at 10.0 m/s collides with a 3,000-kg
car moving north. The cars stick together and move as a unit after
the collision, at an angle of 35.0 degrees north of east and at a
speed of 5.55 m/s. Find the speed of the 3,000-kg car before the
collision.
__________ m/s north

On a very muddy football field, a 109-kg linebacker tackles an
82-kg halfback. Immediately before the collision, the linebacker is
slipping with a velocity of 9.0 m/s north and the halfback is
sliding with a velocity of 6.3 m/s east. What is the velocity
(magnitude and direction) at which the two players move together
immediately after the collision?
magnitude ------m/s
direction --------° north of east

Two pieces of clay are moving directly toward each other. When
they collide, they stick together and move as one piece. One piece
has a mass of 324 grams and is moving to the right at a speed of
1.15 m/s. The other piece has mass 625 grams and is moving to the
left at a speed of 0.87 m/s. What fraction of the total initial
kinetic energy is lost during the collision? In other words what is
(KE?i???KE?f???? )/...

A 1450-kg car moving east at 17.0 m/s collides with a 1850-kg
car moving south at 15.0 m/s, and the two cars connect
together.
What is the direction of the cars right after the collision?
Enter the angle in degrees where positive indicates north of east
and negative indicates south of east.

Two 200 kg cars approach an intersection. One car is traveling
east at 18 m/s. The second car is traveling north at 24 m/s. They
both collide and violently stick together. Immediately after the
collision they are moving

Car A of mass 1,274 kg is traveling east at 13.2 m/s when it
collides with car B of mass 1,596 kg which is traveling at 14.6 m/s
at 71.4 degrees N of W. The two cars stick together after the
collision. What is the magnitude of the final velocity of the
cars?
